Prof. Ib Chorkendorff from Technical University of Denmark (DTU), visited Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter (FJIRSM) at the invitation of the CAS Key Laboratory of Design and Assembly of Functional Nanostructures. He delivered a presentation entitled “Electro-catalysis for Conversion of Sustainable Energy” on November 8, 2019.  He gave an overview of their recent progress in making nanoparticles in relation to electrochemical conversion of sustainable energy, and the mechanism studies of electrocatalysis in water splitting (OER & HER), carbon dioxide reduction (CO2RR), and reduction of nitrogen to ammonia (NRR). He also demonstrated a new principle for dynamic detection of gas evolution allowing for a clear distinction between redox states and actual OER, and the investigation of conversion of CO or CO2 into valuable fuels and chemical electrocatalysis. 

Since 1987Prof. Ib Chorkendorff had been employed at the Department of Physics, Technical University of Denmark (DTU).  He was elected as the Fellow of The Academy for Technical Sciences in 2001, the Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry in 2015, and the member of the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters in 2018. He has published more than 350 papers on Science, Nature, Energy & Environmental Science, JACS, Angewandte Chemie, etc. His research focuses on the surface physics investigating fundamental aspects of surface reactions, especially with emphasis on establishing a fundamental understanding of the technologically important field of catalysis.
